Buzzin in to remind you if nothing ever changed there would be no butterflies 🦋☀️ . . . I got this thoughtful gift from one of my patients today. Inside it was filled with chocolate, which I needed later for some low sugs 🥳 It was the perfect reminder for me as I’m maneuvering through my new home and my new career. Change is good and it facilitates growth💕 Allow it to happen, embrace it, and watch yourself FLOURISH 🌼 . . . Not pictured is a huge smile underneath my mask. I’m thankful to be in a position to help others, however they help me more than they know! My patients are fighters and they don’t let their chronic condition stop them 👊 I hope this quote spreads some light on your day like it did mine🐝 MUCH LOVE, sugar fam!
When we get some down time, we head to @waltdisneyworld, and are visiting Epcot Flower and Garden Festival. We love the topiary plants, flowers and most of all the food! As a #Type1Diabetic #insulindependent I have to find a balance to eating, and many tempting foods are here, as well as the walking. Will be posting as we round the park! @amdiabetesassn Ambassador #nationalnutritionmonth #diabetesandexercise #diabetesmanagement #FocusOnDiabetes #connectedforlife www.diabetes.org #americandiabetesassociation #eatingandinsulin #diabeticwarrior #eyehealth #diabeticretinopathy #patriciamasseywelter @balanced_body #Pilates and #corealign Master Instructor
It’s official… I AM VACCINATED! As soon as the nurse walked away from my car I burst into tears- the relief is overwhelming. I am so thankful for science and all the amazing people who helped create this vaccine. I am looking forward to my second dose. I am looking forward to feeling safe walking my dog. I am looking forward to going to the market for a quick grocery run??! I am looking forward to leaving my house. I am looking forward to not having daily panic attacks. I am looking forward to just feeling SAFE again. I am SO grateful that my job has allowed me to work from home this past year and until the world is back to its new normal. I really hope the new normal is full of people who remember to not take their health for granted and to keep loving and protecting their fellow humans. Stay safe everyone! Oh and THANK YOU Carbon Health!!!! #ᴠᴀᴄᴄɪɴᴇssᴀᴠᴇʟɪᴠᴇs #immunocompromised #type1diabetic
